Linear Rails are devices used widely used across the full range of industrial sectors. A Linear Rail System is designed to support the movement and load of a piece of equipment in a linear way, either vertically or horizontally. Linear rails are linear assemblies that have twin parallel tracks containing load-supporting balls or rollers. As the backbone of many industrial applications, they provide low-friction guidance and high stiffness for loads that can range from just a few grams to thousands of kilograms.
Available in Round or Square
Bearings housed in carriages and tables can ride on round shafts or square profile rails. Engineers faced with a linear-motion application often turn to pre-engineered linear bearings and guides. But linear guides come in two basic shapes – round and square – and designers often struggle with which type to use. Square or profile rails once cost significantly more than round because the former need extensive grinding that is inherent to the design. But recent manufacturing advances and economies of scale let square rails now compete with round in a broad range of applications.
